Pearl Jam's former accountant has been sentenced to 14 months in prison for embezzling funds from the band.

Rickey Charles Goodrich admitted that he stole over $380,000 during his four-year stint as chief financial officer for their management company, Curtis Management. He pled guilty to the charges at the trial earlier this year and will be reporting to prison on March 14.

The grunge rockers discovered that Goodrich was defrauding them after they hired private investigators to look into cash flow issues. It was found that Goodrich had redirected money through wire transfers in order to pay off his own debts.

PJ, who have not commented publicly on the case, released their tenth studio album, Lighting Bolt, last October. They will be playing at several large festivals in Europe this summer.
